The public health museum is just off of Dascomb Road off of Route 93 in Tewksbury, MA. If you are passing by and have some time, it is in an old building that just oozes history. The exhibits are informative and the whole ambiance gives...More

This museum is wonderful. Extremely knowledgeable volunteer took me around. The building is amazing. Lots of original features. Lovely woodwork. Well preserved 1930s WPA murals. The hospital has an interesting history and the exhibits of medicine in the past are well done.

The museum is beautiful with artefacts that reminded me of how far we've come in eradication some diseases. It also gave a glimpse of the nursing profession and treatments.

Thus small museum is on the grounds of the Tewksbury State Hospital. Many people don't realize it's there. It holds many interesting exhibits dealing with the history of medicine and public health. A must for anyone interested in this field.
